cost me a bike, could have cost alot more!
on 6 September 2011
Firstly, zoom into this pic, it clearly says "Halfords" on it!!!!!!!!
I thought this was decent until a massive failure of the device cost me a bike, the problem is that the rubber thing that the bikes sit on can just slide off the bar it's on, this meant that whilst driving along the motorway a bike "fell off!" the bars even though the bars were at a good angle, the clips failed because of the load put on them, and my mates bike was sent off down the motorway!, I gave him my bike as a replacement, mine only just survived only being held on by one bar. If you value your bikes do one of 2 things.
1, Adapt the bars so the the rubber mounts cannot just slide off, or
2, Don't bother buying it in the first place.
I now need to buy a new bike, and a new bike carrier, It won't be this one! Please zoom in to to the pic and see yourself, the bar that bike holders are on just have a black end, there's nothing to stop them just sliding off!
